Welcome to the 24th season of the Atchison Farmers’ Market.
The Atchison Farmers’ Market will have a “make-over” this Spring. The City of Atchison will be installing a walking path in front of the Atchison Art Association’s mosaic wall. They will also redo the Market Center between the pavilions, making it a smooth place to walk – ADA accessible!
Our board members will be organizing many Saturday and Wednesday events – from food demonstrations, to educational events on good nutrition and health, and, of course, including musical performances. The Atchison Jazz Express will perform in July and August. And we will have some new “surprise” vendors for your enjoyment.
As always, the Atchison Farmers Market board and vendors thank the City of Atchison and the Chamber of Commerce for their support.
We look forward to seeing you at our “fresh, friendly, local” market. Come support our vendors and meet your neighbors on Saturday mornings and Wednesday afternoon.
Mandala painting at the Market
The Atchison Farmers’ Market has the mission of developing a congenial, supportive community among our visitors, customers, and the farmers, bakers, and others who bring their ware to our market. This Saturday, we are inviting all to bring their art supplies (crayons, paints, markers, etc.) to the Market to create personal peace bringing artwork – Mandalas. A mandala is a symbol of the universe in its ideal form, and its creation signifies the transformation of a universe of suffering into one of joy.
Indian Food at the Farmers’ Market
One of our AFM Board Members, Sabitha Salzmann, will do a food demonstration at the Market this Saturday, July 23. She will prepare Indian egg curry. Come enjoy!!!
